I’ve had many close calls in life, and I’m alive
By the grace of divine loving forces somewhere
Outside of this reality that protect me
From myself when not focused. I’m most gratefully
In the lap of wellbeing. I’m now more aware
Of a consciousness through which my being may thrive.
I had not trusted in it. I was ignorant
Of the broader perspective of which I’m a part.
My always doing things the same way causes me
To expect things to happen that don’t have to be.
My calamitous ways lead to a better start.
I know what things I can do and what things I can’t.
This Source knows where I am in relationship to
Where I want to be. The path of least resistance
It knows also. Resources and help are plenty.
The reason I don’t let good things happen to me
Is that I’ve copped the notion that my circumstance
Is a thing that only my proud self can work through.
It is there, and it’s knowing and loving always.
I’ll acknowledge its presence and honor it more
And expect it to be there when I need it most.
One can be absent minded while being engrossed
In the business of living, and my asking for
Instant help when I need it enhances my days.
